Windows Central's take
As someone who loves the Bluey TV show and spends lots of time collecting video game memorabilia, it's great to see that this fun sweepstakes is available. Of course, there can only be one lucky winner, but they'll have a truly unique console on their hands when they win.
I also love how well Bluey fits on the Xbox Series X console. Given that she and her family are all relatively boxy characters, the shape of the Xbox Series X is absolutely fitting and works really well to show her off in a real-life setting. I'd be tempted to 3D print some ears to set on top of the console if I managed to be the lucky winner.
If you're at all interested in getting this sweet console then take some time to retweet a promotional tweet from the @Xbox account. Good luck to you!
